All participants are expected to: be strong skiers capable of skiing double black runs under any conditions, have prior touring experience, have glacier and crevasse rescue training, completed AST1 equivalent or better, be adequately fit to tour for several consecutive days. Winter camping experience is prefered.

All participants will be screened. If we have not skied together please contact me describing your experience.

Sample Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet at the carpool, arrange car shuttle, drive to Diamondhead trailhead, skin to campsite near Opal cone or Mt Garibaldi.

Day 2: Mt Garibaldi summit and ski

Day 3: Mt Carr and Castle Towers Mountain

Day 5: Half day ski, pack up camp, ski out, dinner in Squamish

I may increase the group size to 6 but this increases the complexity of the car shuttle. Another option is to have taxis from Squamish meet us at the Rubble Creek parking area. This trip may be cancelled or postponed if conditions are not favourable.

Required Items to Bring:
AT or Splitboard, avi gear, glacier and crevasse rescue gear, overnight gear, ski crampons, food for 4 days. Dark Chocolate for the leader.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Boot Crampons
